EKG or ECG is called electrocardiogram, a test done to evaluate the electrical activity of the heart. During the test, you will be asked to lie on the table and sticky patches are placed on the chest. This is connected to the machine with wires. You need to lie still during the procedure so that they can obtain the electric activity of the heart. This is a painless test.
